Sing Along: The Future Belongs to Me

From the Wizbang blog comes this jaw-dropper:
My 8th grade son is in an advanced English class at a public middle school here in Racine, Wisconsin. I just found out that my son's new (copyright 2008) Wisconsin - McDougal Littell Literature book has 15 pages covering Barack Obama.

I was shocked - No John McCain, no Hillary Clinton, no George Bush - Just Barack Obama. I'm wondering how it is that Obama's story gets put into an 8th grade literature book? It would be one thing, if it was just the tidbit about his boyhood days, but 15 pages, and they talk about his "Life of Service". Honestly, what has Obama really done to be included in this book?
Wow. Just a few more weeks and then we can all join in the sing-along.

Update: Here's the Gateway Pundit post it all came from. This one has a photo of the portion of the book devoted to The One. It's surreal.

That is scary! And it needs to get noticed!

This really is awful - that almost looks like proof of how the Annenberg money got used...

Anyways - some good news!

Former Ambassador under President Clinton, Mark Erwin, wrote today that he is endorsing John McCain for President.

Sen. Obama does not yet have sufficient leadership experience. He has never led so much as a Boy Scout troop. I am not comfortable thinking of him as the leader of the greatest nation on earth as his first real executive job. In 2007, his running mate, Sen. Joe Biden, said, “I think he can be ready, but right now I don’t believe he is. The presidency is not something that lends itself to on-the-job training.”
